Quotes

[first lines]
Tepper: [knocking on her door] Mrs. Darmsetter? Hey... You left your door open again.
Mrs. Darmsetter: Heaven sake, I wonder how did that happen.
Tepper: Yes well, how is everything?
Mrs. Darmsetter: Well, I'm worried about my mail. I think someone's stealing it. Because I haven't received any letters from my kids in a long time, and they always write.
Tepper: Well, are they taking all your mail or just the letters?
Mrs. Darmsetter: Just the letters. You'd think they'd take everything else, wouldn't you? They don't.

One Location, yet It Stays Fresh!
4 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Despite the fact that this movie takes place in one location, it does not drag or get boring - that in and of itself is a HUGE accomplishment! I thought the story was great how it put the main character into a sticky situation. All the characters had distinct personalities, which kept their conversations entertaining. The psychological suspense was strong. It's a movie wrought with tension. I applaud an indie filmmaker (Jeff Probst) for pulling off a good movie on a budget that is tiny compared to the studio budgets.

If you liked it, watch the director's commentary. Jeff Probst is very open about the process and how this film came into fruition (before he got his Survivor gig, by the way).

If you are looking for an indie film with some humor, psychological suspense, and good acting, check out this film.
